Last year’s performers included hometown bands Twenty-one Pilots and Walk the Moon, along with Bleachers, The Black Keys, Snoop Dogg, and many others. It was the fourth annual music festival, making this year the fifth. It was also the first year with a new setup of stages based in Sawyer’s Point and Yeatman’s Cove.

Kicking off the summer every year, Bunbury is a chance for music goers to relieve the stress of finals week and start summer with friends and great music.
Sophomore Gabby Yun said,”My friends and I went on Sunday to listen to Twenty-one Pilots last year, and I loved every moment of it, listening to the amazing music and being with amazing people.”
The list of artists performing along the Ohio river on June 3-5 was released last week, with the three big headliners being The Killers, Florence + the Machine, and Mudcrutch.
Yun said, ” I really like The Killers sound. I have pretty much grown up on their music, I remember listening to them in grade school.”
Other artists performing include Of Monsters and Men, The Neighbourhood, X Ambassadors, Coleman Hell, The Mowgli’s, and many more. The daily schedule should be released in late March/early April.
As of now, general admissions for all three days is $169.00 and daily admissions will be released when the daily schedule is released.
Yun said, “I hope that at least some of the bands I like will be placed on the same day so that I can make the most of the pass.”
